    I have been working at NIIT

    Pros

    Not that much pressure. The overall stress is not that much that a software developer usually suffers from. The work culture is OK with the office premises being one of the best.

    Cons

    Low paying organization, very low salary when compared to the same vertical in other companies. There is no long-sighted vision of this company, taking the number 1 spot for granted in asia, not much time remaining before it is surpassed by a big fish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a good vision there has to be a lot of uprooting in order to instill a threat and a hunger to do something good and new.

    Pros

    NIIT focus on training and education, which is a great area to work in. It had its time in China, just slept on passed achievement.

    Cons

    Poor management and out of date products won't meet the request of market. It cause loosing market share and become 2rd tire company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. what achieved is the past. Focus on today and look ahead to the future. NIIT is in the right place, but not doing the right thing.
